A Student's Greatest Connection
We fully support our teachers and paraprofessionals and want them to be compensated for their dedication, commitment, and hard work. They should be allowed to teach their subject matters with minimal interference and influence from administrators, after all, the teachers and paras are the ones on the frontlines of education and have the most contact with our students. At the January 2022 ERCSB meeting, we stood in full support of the teachers brave enough to speak up about the proposed termination of teachers that appeared in the school budget.
We are still waiting for copies of the negotiated contracts, but barring surprises, we will be supporting the teacher and para contracts. For the paras especially, we need to increase their pay to match the value of service they give our kids every day.
